The human hairline varies from one person to another. Women more so have their own unique hair line and forehead space than men. Generally women have a lower hair line their male counter parts. The ideal hairline would be around 5.5 to 7 cm above the brows before it turns vertical along the sides of the skull.
The shape of female hair line is more of an oval, while men have a more ‘M shaped’ that has receding corners. The shape of the hair line is closely related to the hair loss pattern men start with a receding hair line and women usually have thinning when it begins. The difference in hair lines of women are formed differently at different ages. Women usually have thinning more common than a receding hair line.
Hair line receding in women can happen in women due to various reasons ranging from hereditary issues to combing styles. The density and volume are fine behind the line, but the forehead seems dis proportionate and larger than the facial structure. The disadvantage of this is limited hair styles for the person and making the person look older than their age.
